About Ms. Single Mama

Once upon a time, before I became a single mom, I got married…


And then my Prince Charming turned into a frog.

After marriage counseling, much soul ringing and yet another really nasty fight I decided it would be better to raise my four month old son alone than in that environment. So I packed up my things and left my husband, my career and my friends to move in with my mother and become a single mother.

During my first year as a single mom, I was hunting – searching for someone to rescue me.

Then something happened.

I opened my eyes and realized that I didn’t need a man at all, I just wanted one. There’s a big difference.

One year, many bad dates and a new apartment later I started this blog about being a single mom… everything that followed is documented here. Start at the beginning , watch my videos or catch up with a copy of Ms. Single Mama Uncensored: Dating, Sex and Love, a 120 page eBook that includes all of the back stories and juicy secrets you won’t find on my blog.


The Love of My Life – Benjamin


My true Prince Charming, Benjamin is now 5 years old. And, even though being a single mom is by far the most challenging circumstance anyone can imagine – I’d never want it any other way, and he’s the reason why.

The Single Mom – Alaina, aka Ms. Single Mama

I’m a single mom but I’m also a single woman, a writer, a novice photographer and a blogger. My fans call me inspirational and refreshing while my haters call me “a disgrace to my gender” and a bunch of other things too nasty to publish. I’ll let you decide what you think, but if you’re a total jerk there’s a good chance I’ll delete your comment – because the world has enough negative energy already.

My Man – Mr. Single Dad

He’s tall, he’s dark, he’s handsome and he’s absolutely wonderful. In fact, I had accepted the fact that he may never show up and had become quite content with that fact. That’s part of the reason why, I suppose, that we found each other. Love is really only possible if you love yourself first. And then… if you’re lucky, you’ll meet someone who compliments you – not completes you.

It’s only fitting that he is also a single parent. See more pictures of us here. Read about how we met here. And – update – how we got married here.

My Business

Working for other people made it hard to leave work when Benjamin was sick or to even leave right at 5:00 to pick him up from school. So I started my own business. So far, very good.
